Measure the geometry of the machine before linear movement


In order to meet quality requirements and minimise the number of waste workpieces, the checking and alignment of machine tools is essential. The most important thing to check is the geometry of the machine; not even a precisely calibrated linear motion can compensate for a crooked movement or uneven surface. The correct machine geometry is the basis for being able to produce parts that remain within the tolerances.
Our geometry measurement systems can handle most tasks in this field, despite the fact that there is considerable variation as regards to machine design: boring machines, vertical, horizontal and portal milling machines, lathes, vertical lathes, drilling machines, automatic drills, water cutting machines, presses, etc.

Easy-Laser® makes work much faster

Compared to conventional methods, such as dial gauges, etc work can be carried out much more quickly with the use of a laser measurement system. There are many reasons why:


  • Light and handy equipment = shorter time for preparations and measurements
  • Possible to measure and align at long distances = greater accuracy
  • Possible to measure both X and Y (Z) directions at the same time = saves time
  • The reference (laser beam) is always 100% straight
  • It is possible to create documentation of the measurement results via printer and to PC


  • Heavy and ungainly equipment = prolongs measurement time
  • The equipment can be difficult to install = prolongs measurement time
  • Possible drop in the indicator gauges’ fixtures
  • Possible reading errors on the indicator gauges (+ or -, parallel axis error etc)
  • Possible changes or wear on fixtures = the reference is not straight
  • No documentation

Higher precision with
Hyper PSD™ detectors

A special feature of the Easy-Laser® E940 Machine tool system is the HyperPSD™ technology. This makes it possible to display a resolution of 0.0001 mm [0.000005”/0.005 mils]. This resolution will make it possible for you to get an even better control of your machine tools than before.


Maybe you have other measurement and alignment problems to be solved. It is very likely that we already have run into them! Don’t hesitate to contact us for a discussion about a solution.


The more you understand about measurement technology, the more use you will get out of your measurement system in your daily work. Attend one of our training classes now!
